It not only enhances students’ public speaking skills but also immerses them in the unique beauty of the Chinese language. In the afternoon, the campus cultural festival, through diverse cultural experiences, deepens the international students’ cross-cultural understanding and community awareness. We look forward to collectively experiencing the vibrant and culturally rich celebration, embracing the unique charm of Chinese culture.
